Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.55 available
Date Tue, 12 May 2020 15:26:49 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.55.

Apache Tomcat 8 is an open source software implementation of the Java
Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Unified Expression Language, Java
WebSocket and Java Authentication Service Provider Interface for
Containers technologies.

Apache Tomcat 8.5.x replaces 8.0.x and includes new features pulled
forward from the 9.0.x branch. The notable changes since 8.5.54 include:

- Improve the handling of requests that use an expectation. Do not
  disable keep-alive where the response has a non-2xx status code
  but the request body has been fully read.

- Change default value separator for property replacement to ":-"
  due to possible conflicts. The syntax is now "${name:-default}".

- Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.24

Please refer to the change log for the complete list of changes:
